Tell me everything by saying nothing

There are 2 interesting facts, that when taken together cause a situation of surprising stupidity.

If one comes from Country A and wishes to apply for a visa to a place we will call, for no specific reason, Country I, and further more if one is in Country C where C =/= {A,I}, one cannot get a visa from the Consulate of I in C because one does not come from Country C.

If one, being in Country C, tries to get a visa from the Consulate I in A, one will find they cannot because they are not currently in Country A.

Apparently Country I, while steeped in this official BS, used to get on okay because you could always circumvent the rules is some way by calling on connections and having a nice chat, but now that Country I is moving into the, lets say, E Union, where one has to follow the rules, and Country I has not yet made a proper set of rules, there are issues.

That is all I wish to say on that topic at this time, except that I got a diplomatic official from Country I to admit that that penalty kick was a bad call.

My landlady has returned from a month in San Francisco and we are getting on well. In other news, it seems Manitobans, like Siberians, think putting strong beer into large plastic drink bottles is a good idea. It must be something to do with being directly in the middle of a frozen, sparsely populated country.

A series of misfortunate events!
Ah evening young filo sue fur,

spoke to anonymous relative (father)from Country A this evening and was informed of the rather delicate diplomacy issue. If it wasn't for the fact that Country I serves my favourite food, I might be forced to run amuck and do something foolish. However it's rather hot today in Country A and I'm a bit tired. Good to see your in fine spirits and putting your informative years to good use. How many different beers have you tried now? Maybe you work out a graph for that one!
Will keep an avid interest in your progess, given that your representing your Southern Cousins.

Keep warm and build more graphs!

Cheers
Your Great Southern Uncle & Co

Re: A series of misfortunate events!
Uncle! Hello!

Yes, I understand it has been very hot there of late, which ruins all motivation for rampage. I think I have tried 7 Canadian beers now, of varying quality.

Say hi to Aunty and Cousins! It is good to hear from you.

A completely hypothetical question. No reason, really…
While we’re talking in codes, if one was interested in, say countries with which country A has no extradition treaty where would one look?


Also it’s marks 29th birthday today (country A time). Not sure what the Geezer’s doing today (chasing school girls most likely!), but this Saturday (again country A time) we’ll be gathering at Hog’s Breath to consume much meat in his honor. So, assuming the heathens in country C even celebrate Saturdays, feel free to join in and devourer an animal.

-H.
